    Saints come to life when kids can read, color, and play all in one book! This comic-style coloring book with cut-out trading cards, activities, and games teaches children about the amazing life of Blessed Miguel Pro. Born in Mexico in 1891, he was the third of eleven children. During Miguel’s life, Catholicism was banned in Mexico. Anyone caught practicing the Catholic faith was persecuted. Despite this risk, Miguel became a Jesuit priest and courageously celebrated Mass and administered the sacraments. His cheerfulness and great sense of humor encouraged many of his Catholic countrymen. He was eventually martyred, expressing his love for Jesus with the words “Long live Christ the King.”
